Some used motor scooter parts for sale include carburetors and engines, as well as entire rework kits and seats. Other parts available on many second-hand and retail websites are wheels, rims and handlebars. Customers may also purchase accessories such as moped storage bags, water bottle holders and light fixtures to provide visibility during night riding.
To purchase a used moped, begin by inspecting or asking about the vehicle's engine. Make sure that it starts, because if it does not, there may be a fuel or spark problem in the machine. Ask about the tank, and look inside to see if there is rust. Make sure that everything is in place and that the gas tank and fuel lines are not clogged.
Check the speedometer, and see if the miles on the device match the appearance of the vehicle. Sometimes, tampering may damage the speedometer or give false readings, so be thorough in your inspection to spot obvious signs of wear and damage around the vehicle. Check for chain wear and cracked tires, as there may be signs of damage that may need immediate repair or replacement before the vehicle is functional. Check the alignment as well, and ask for a test drive if you are buying from a retail location or a local second-hand vendor.
